APSE Northern Region Forum and General Meeting

This meeting is an ideal opportunity for officers, elected members and local authority partners and trade unions to hear how local authorities and their partners, are introducing greenspace into traditionally hardscape urban environments in order to not only improve public health and well-being but also improve opportunities for biodiversity and combat the negative effects of climate change.

The pandemic has shown how important greenspaces are to people who have reconnected strongly with the natural environment globally. Coupled with this phenomenon, is the decline in retail on the high street, causing many local authorities to take the opportunity to transform their city centres and urban spaces to adopt a more mixed space approach in which greenspaces play a major part.

New parks, increased tree planting, water features and biodiversity habitats are now all forming part of many new developments whether this be housing, industry or retail. People are now realising and valuing their links with nature and the green environment and are demanding that the old traditional approaches to the urban street scenes are changed.

Therefore, delegates will hear about how these changes in attitudes have come about and how local authorities are making the necessary changes to create quality local environments., ones which will meet the changing demands of a post COVID society, where the need to avert biodiversity decline, combat climate change and adapt to changing lifestyles will require careful consideration when managing the local environments of our urban towns and cities.
